Title: State of the Hub: Past, Present, and Future
Speakers: Indiana State Library
Title: Partnering for Success: Digital Asset Management at Rose-Hulman Logan Library
Speakers: Bernadette Ewan and Ryan Roberts, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Abstract: Logan Library began using MediaHaven digital asset management software to store and describe digitized and born digital images and videos. In addition to the collections the library and archives are adding to the database, the library has partnered with the communications and marketing department to gather all digital image content that is created by their department moving forward. Both the librarians and the staff of the communications and marketing department have access to add content and metadata to the database, and are actively working to describe and create collections. Special collections are being created and made available for the Rose community and the public to enjoy. The next step in our project plan is to gather and include all historical images and future digital image content that is created by the athletics department.
Title: Digitization of Madam C.J. Walker Collections
Speakers: Susan Hall Dotson, Lyndsey Blair, Elizabeth Murphy, and Kathy Mulder, Indiana Historical Society
Abstract: IHS was one of 17 institutions in the nation to receive funding from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) for the 2018 Digitizing Hidden Special Collection and Archives awards to digitize the papers of Madam CJ Walker Collections. The Madam CJ Walker Collections span 95 years and relate to the life and work of Madam C.J. Walker (1867-1919), a pivotal entrepreneurial leader in African American history, and the Madam C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company. As part of the grant, IHS will digitize and catalog 40,000 items of correspondence, business records, photographs, and artifacts within a 12-month period. This session will explore the management and workflow of the project, sharing lessons learned from working with off-site vendors, metadata creation and coordinating in-house use of the collection. It will also highlight the various uses of the digital content, including online exhibits such as Destination Indiana.
Title: Crikey Mate, 3D scanning, printing, and Virtual Reality (VR) of an Ethnographic Art Collection
Speakers: Jeanine Wine, Manchester University Funderburg Library; Jenny Johnson, IUPUI University Library
The IUPUI University Library Center for Digital Scholarship in collaboration with Manchester University is 3D scanning objects from Manchester’s Ethnographic Art Collection. These 3D images will provide access and digitally preserve Northern Nigeria’s cultural treasures. This presentation will highlight 3D scanning, 3D printing and virtual reality of a crocodile mask from the collection.

Title: Scanning Tips and Tricks
Speaker: Joan Hostetler, Indiana Album
Abstract: Let’s face it, digitization is a laborious process. Scanning, straightening, cropping, creating file names, making derivative JPEGs, checksum creation and validation, back-ups, and quality control can take hours. In this session we’ll assume that you know how to scan documents and photographs, but will demonstrate post-processing shortcuts and inexpensive software to speed up the job. Learn about Adobe Photoshop actions and batch processing, free renaming software, checksum utility tools, image viewers, cropping and straightening software, and other tips. We welcome your suggestions and will include plenty of time for others to discuss their favorite time-saving tools. (Contact email@example.com if you would like to give a short demonstration of your shortcut.)
